Sharma reportedly posted a video on Twitter earlier this month, where he criticised Tim Cook directly for having "serious issues" within Apple, before asserting that the top executive needs to leave the Bay Area. At around 9:00 p.m. on January 15, 2020, Mr. Sharma again trespassed on the Apple executive's property, again entering the property through the gate without permission and rang the doorbell. They were made available online only after Think Computer Foundation sued Santa Clara County Superior Court to make the documents more easily available since they had already been digitized. During the call, Mr. Sharma stated that he knows where members of Apple's Executive Team lives, and stated that "I don't use ammunition but I know people who do", that Apple's CEO is a criminal and that Apple tried to have Mr. Sharma killed while Mr. Sharma was in the hospital.

Apple declined to commentand referred NBC News to the court documents.

The court's restraining order prevents Sharma from visiting the tech giant's Apple Park headquarters, in Cupertino, and Cook's Palo Alto residence.
